If you’re involved in a longer-haul domestic or professional removal then Total Care Removals’ Line Haul (sometimes called Linehaul) services between Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington might well be acting behind the scenes for you!
What is Line Haul?
Many removals are typically short-haul.
In other words, they might be from one part of a town to another for a business or perhaps one suburb to another in the case of domestic removals.
All our removals, irrespective of whether they’re local or longer distance, will always receive the highest possible standards of professional care. We don’t know how to do it any other way!
However, some removals by their nature can be a little different and require things such as special planning, custom vehicles or specific packing methods etc. Included in that category of ‘special approach required’ are those that involve longer distances or inter-island removals.
Those long-distance removals are called ‘Line Haul’ and might typically include a removal from say Auckland to Christchurch.
What it involves
If your goods are going to be in transit over extra-long distances or include inter-island transport then this has a few implications for us and you:
- It may raise over-night logistics for the vehicle and removals team.
- In some cases, perhaps intermediate temporary storage will be needed.
- Longer-distances mean more time on the road and that in turns means special considerations may be required for loading and packing techniques.
- You may need to consider overnight accommodation.
- In certain circumstances, notably when your items are not large enough for a ‘full load’, it may be necessary, as well as far more cost effective, to consolidate your items with another removal going to the same destination.
All of these considerations will be discussed and managed by our team working on Line Haul service provision.
No difference to you
A key message here though is that you won’t have to worry about the technicalities of what’s required. That’s our job!
We’ll provide the perfect service for your requirements and if that involves our Line Haul services then so be it.
That though will be entirely transparent to you. As far as you’re concerned, you’ll just see our usual excellent removers and a suitable vehicle.
If we’re packing for you, we’ll just take care of anything that’s required by the nature of your move. If you’re taking care of your own packing, then we’ll give you some advice and tips about what to look out for and how to go about things.
In fact, on our website you’ll find plenty of advice on all aspects of removals. It’s well worth looking at some of our online information and reading through our blogs.
